When you feel stuck in your career it seems like there are no opportunities and people have been losing their jobs for months. It sounds bad all around. So even though you want to change jobs, you tell yourself to hold tight because this is all there is or the best you can do, etc. So you have resigned yourself to the idea that this is just the way it is. Or even worse maybe you are angry about feeling stuck. When you live in resignation or anger, it becomes impossible to grow, change or shift things in your life.
